Peter, Barbara and John. England
July 08  " Many Thanks. O'Driscoll's B&B . was unanimously voted the best B&B, best breakfast and most welcoming hostess by the three of us - and not just on our trip to Ireland but everywhere we have been. We also loved the village of Glin. Hope to see you again some day."

Glin Heritage Walking Trails

Glin Heritage Walks offer a wide variety of spectacular coastal and woodland scenery. Glin, a picturesque village on the Shannon Estuary, can boast a very rich and varied culture dating back to the early Celtic settlements of the Corbry Clan. Formerly known as Glencorbry, Glin has been the ancestral home to the Knights of Glin since C13th. Descendents of the FitzGeralds of Desmond, the Knights 'old' and 'new' castles bear witness to our historic past.
